our kennel news, and upcoming litters.
We hope that you are doing okay out there, and that despite the anxiety and hardship of the current crisis, your family is safe and well and feeling optimistic. We are lucky enough to be holed up out in the countryside of TN with a bunch of affable Labs, so we're doing okay, too, and thanks so much to the many of you who have contacted us with well wishes and kind thoughts. (We put up a lot of dog food, but did stop short of hoarding... although figuring out that line took some circumspection.)
We are hopeful for a litter in May out of Neko and Donaghy: the pups will be all yellows, most likely on the lighter end of the spectrum. While we do have some reservations already, we believe we will have availability, so please contact us for more details at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com if adopting a puppy in July sounds like a good plan for your family.
Please do peruse our website to understand our history, practices, and intentions. We are committed to the welfare of our individual dogs and the breed as a whole, so our first priority is finding family placements for our Labs that are equally committed to lifelong, conscientious care. We appreciate when people share their history and intentions with us in their inquiries, as adopting a puppy is a matter of mutual trust.
Take care, America.

Hello, thanks so much for your interest in Loblolly Labradors.
We are very excited to share that Jubal is expecting a yellow litter to Donaghy in mid-February. This litter will be the third repetition of the cross as each prior litter yielded lovely English Labs with all the hallmarks of the breed that Labrador aficionados expect: beautiful blocky heads, thick/double coats, thick bone, wide breadth and depth of body, wagging otter tails, and, most importantly, that affectionate and intelligent demeanor that says "you're the most important person in the world to me, but just let me go grab this stick for you to prove it."
The pups will be born mid February and ready for adoption in 8 weeks time-- mid April. While with us, they are raised in a clean, indoor, climate controlled environment; administered all requisite de-wormings and initial vaccinations; and, socialized daily in increasing increments of handling, noise desensitization, and novelty introduction. While our Labs perform with great aplomb in the retrieving, obedience, and therapy domains, first and foremost, they are bred to be family companions, and that is exactly what we are looking for in terms of adoption for our dogs: conscientious, warm, and reasonable people who can offer a secure home with loving discipline and lifelong commitment.
As our Labs represent generations of dogs screened (our family line is now in it's 28th year of nurture) for health and soundness, we offer a two year written guarantee against debilitating issues of hip, elbow, and eye health (dysplasia and premature retinal atrophy, respectively) with every pup. At pickup your puppy will go home with a care kit and portfolio, including a week's supply of Victor Hi-Pro Plus kibble, non-rawhide chews, quality treats, toy, comfort rag, and training pads and AKC pre-paid registration, pedigrees, health record, general care information, and written sales contract.
We are located approximately 45 minutes southeast of Nashville, TN.
Again, thanks so much for visiting our site. We welcome questions and inquires, and do our best to respond within 48 hours. LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com
Happy 2020, America!

UPDATE: LUCIE HAS BEEN ADOPTED... THANKS SO MUCH TO ALL THOSE INTERESTED FAMILIES WHO CONTACTED US. BEST REGARDS, EF 01/26/2020
Hello, Lucie is young female (20 months) from our lines who is seeking a home. Her family finds themselves in a predicament that unfortunately requires that they find a new affectionate and conscientious family to welcome her in. A loving and intelligent dog, she is house and crate trained, on heart worm prevention, and located in Chaatanooga, TN. For more information regarding her adoption, please email us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com
Thanks so much to everyone who inquired about adopting Blue... she is now with her new family. We do expect a litter of very light yellow/white pups out of Neko & Donaghy in the coming week.
Please visit our Puppies page for more information and/or contact us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com.
Hello, and thanks for visiting Loblolly Labradors.
We have a black female yearling (15 months) currently available for adoption. Sound and strong with a people-oriented personality, "Blue" is a personable and loving dog ready for long walks on the trail, hunting intensive training, or just playing in the yard. If you would like the companionship of an affectionate and intelligent Lab, but prefer to skip the puppy stages, Blue may be right fit for your family.
For more information on her adoption, please contact us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com
Hello, happy summer...
We have an AVAILABLE YELLOW MALE and BLACK FEMALE out of Octavia and Donaghy: this cross repeats a breeding from two years ago that produced lovely dogs, and we are equally pleased with this second iteration of the pairing.
Through the years we have selected our adults for health, soundness, temperament, and conformation: Donaghy and Octavia very much represent the ideal Lab from the Windancing lineage. Both are health tested for orthopedic and genetic soundness and wonderful ambassadors of this lovely breed of dog.
The pups in this litter are ready for adoption by their new families mid-August. All of our puppies are guaranteed by a two year written warranty on hip, elbow, and eye health; raised in a clean, indoor/climate-controlled environment; socialized daily; and administered all appropriate medical protocols (at least three de-wormings and initial vaccines).
At pickup they'll go home with pre-paid AKC registration; a documentation portfolio including pedigrees, care guidelines, and health records; and, a care kit of sundries including a week's worth of quality kibble to ease the transition.
While our Labs have done well through the years in the field, service, and show arenas, first and foremost we are looking for family placements for our pups in which they'll be loved as integral members of the household. If you are interested in more details regarding this litter or have any questions regarding adoption, please email us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com
Thanks again for your consideration of our Labs.
Have the loveliest of summers,
Eve & Christopher Farrell
Hi, thanks for visiting us.
We are pleased to announce an imminent litter of Windancing's Selkie x Windancing's Wellington of Loblolly. The pups arrive the first week of May to be ready for their new homes the first week of July. While we have several reservations for pups already, the possibility exists that we will have a few available, so if you are interested in bringing a Loblolly Lab into the family this year, please contact us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com to be put on the waiting list.
While Labs from our lines have done well through the years in show, hunting, and service domains, first and foremost we are looking for conscientious families to provide lifelong love and care for these wonderful dogs. All of our pups are warranted by a two written guarantee on hip, elbow, and eye health. While with us the first eight weeks of their lives, they receive daily handling/socialization and all requisite medical protocols to ensure they get a healthy start. We send them home with prepaid AKC registration, a portfolio and pedigree, health records, and care instructions specific to the needs of the breed.
We are located approx 40 minutes southeast of Nashville.
Thanks again for the consideration of your time.

Hello, and thank you for visiting Loblolly. We are proud to offer currently a beautiful and personable daughter of Tonto and Maeby. For details regarding her adoption, please contact us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com
Hello. Thank you for your interest in our Labradors...
We currently have a few puppies available for family placements. Pictured below, they are of Donaghy x Jubal and Tonto x Octavia, respectively, with one further puppy who is a granddaughter of Timber x Pipa. Additional information regarding adoption can be found below these pictures. To speak with us directly for details about one of these puppies, please contact us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com
All of our puppies are offered with a two year written guarantee on hip, elbow, and eye health. Our parent dogs are screened for orthopedic and genetic health and represent a long lineage of healthy, robust Labs with beauty, intelligence, and affection.
We raise our puppies in an indoor, climate-controlled environment, actively socialize them, and administer all requisite de-wormings and the initial round of vaccines. At pick up we send them home with prepaid AKC registration, a care kit, portfolio, health documentation, and a week's supply of quality kibble.
Our family has cultivated the Windancing line for 35 years now, and while we are proud that our Labs have performed well in the field, ring, and work arenas, first and foremost we are looking for family homes for our puppies where they'll be valued and loved as both individuals and representatives of a great breed of dog. (If you have interests for a dog beyond this most basic and important function, please let us know, as occasionally we have puppies whose temperaments are well-suited for occupations beyond the couch and yard :)
We are glad to provide more details about any and/or all of these puppies and answer any questions that you have.
We are located in Middle TN in the greater Nashville area.
Thanks again for visiting us...

You got stuff this holiday. But, what you really wanted was a puppy...
Hello, and thanks for visiting us...
While we do not encourage knee-jerk puppy buying, if you've been contemplating adding a Lab to the family for quite some time and have done the research to establish what a quality breeding program looks like, we'd love to welcome you into our Loblolly family.
We are happy to offer two litters this winter season: Jubal x Donaghy (yellow puppies) and Octavia x Tonto (yellows and blacks).
The pictures below are current as of 01.04.2019 and depict our litter out of Donaghy and Jubal. We still have availability for one yellow female and one yellow male, ready for adoption mid-January. For more details regarding this litter, please scroll to the bottom of the page.
The next set of pictures show our litter out of Octavia and Tonto, also available mid-January for their new homes (#blessed but busy :) We have 2 black females and a black male available. Please scroll to the blog post directly below these pictures for more details.
Thank you for your interest in Loblolly Labradors...
We are very grateful for two litters this winter season:
Donaghy x Jubal (yellow puppies) and
Octavia x Tonto (blacks and yellows), respectively.
Please visit our Males & Females pages to view pictures of all four parents and/or view the slideshow below.
The puppies from both litters will be ready for their new homes mid-January.
Our parents are screened for orthopedic and genetic health, and represent my family's efforts of over 35 years to ethically produce beautiful Labradors that are healthy, intelligent, and companionable. We stand by the quality of our puppies with a two year written guarantee on hip, elbow, and eye health, and offer ongoing support to all of our Loblolly families. Our pups are raised indoors in a climate, controlled environment and receive all requisite medical care (quality nutrition, 3 de-wormings, and the first round of vaccines), plus daily socialization to ensure that they come to your family confident and happy. Through the years, our Labradors have been successfully trained for hunt, obedience, and therapy, but first and foremost, they are family dogs.
If all of this sounds like what you are looking for, please contact us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com or call 901-338-4321 for further details regarding availability and adoption.
The pictures below show Donaghy & Jubal (parents of the all yellow litter), Octavia & Tonto (parents of yellow and black litter), and puppies from previous litters and reflect what you can expect from a Loblolly puppy.
Thanks again for visiting us...
Happy New Year to you and your family!

Hello, and thank you for visiting Loblolly.
UPDATE: NOVEMBER 2018... Thanks to all of the loving folks willing to bring Yoko into their families. She has been placed in her new home :)
We are proud to offer for adoption to a loving and conscientious family, a young female just a bit over a year old. Yoko is a lovely dog-- healthy, affectionate, intelligent, and beautiful. As she is a few inches over conformation standards for the show ring, we've decided not to incorporate her into our breeding program, but we do so reluctantly because of her many outstanding qualities and because we love her.
We would like her, however, to find a place in a family's home and heart where she will get the lavish individual attention that she very much deserves. She is a very gentle dog, people-oriented and eager to be a part of human activity.
Please contact us for more details regarding her adoption. Loblollylabradors@gmail.com
We are located about 35 min southeast of Nashville, TN.
Thanks for your interest in our Labs.
Eve and Chris Farrell
My family got our first Labrador when I was eight. I wanted a cat. Despite my initial reluctance and deep desire for a feline, our first Labs-- Spike & Princess-- brought great happiness into our household and marked the beginning of my lifelong love for Labradors. Eventually I got my cat, but with 35 years of experience with this breed, I am grateful for the beauty and joy of my family's Labrador heritage, and thus, I dedicate this page to the very first ones of my childhood.
